A Modern Cottage Kitchen by Roost

IMG_7659Kelly and I are big fans of Roost made bathrooms and kitchens. We find each one, no matter the style, to have a refreshingly simple, clean and balanced aesthetic. David seems to know how to get the most out of minimal means. A modern mantra if there ever was one!

IMG_0269In this example, David was asked to redesign a kitchen for a fairly new {built in 2008} contemporary arts and crafts-ish, suburban home — the ones that seem to define new Asheville housing for the past decade. Loving the location, the clients called David to save them from the Home Depot styling they were immersed in.

David selected only three materials to create the palette for the kitchen: White Oak for the closet wall, cabinets, shelves and furniture, white subway tile for backsplash walls and white carerra marble for the counters and tabletop. Nothing new in materials, but it is that simple and sophisticated, Danish modern approach that makes it a home run. The kitchen perfectly blends retro cottage with urban industrial making it as historic and warm as it is clean and cool.Mardell Comp 1

The clients will now be able to walk into their kitchen via a small mudroom with places to lay down their bags, kick off their snow covered shoes and hang their parka. With the open shelving and flowing layout the Snowpocalpyse supplies can be stored in minutes. Gone is the dividing island from kitchen to living space replaced by a centralizing farmhouse table allowing more flow for living, working and gathering. Laundry and extra storage are tucked behind sliding barn doors to be opened or closed as needed.IMG_0266

Last, the ingenious and not readily apparent note about this kitchen is that David and his shop designed and built the kitchen elements so they could be flat packed and shipped. While it looks and sounds Ikea, in this case you receive quality, custom components that are solid wood through and through.IMG_0267

So, if you are looking to swap something sleepy and standard for something more life giving and “locally made” you may want to give Roost a call. I know we would. Cheers! Troy

This is one of the coolest lofts in downtown Asheville. Though I have visited before, yesterday Kelly and I did a preview for her designer, buyer clients. I didn’t want to leave as it was too easy to imagine myself living there. The space is super sexy all around and the details noted below are both thoughtfully and artistically done. I especially love the light control panel as you enter. Coincidentally, this is the first residence I was invited to during my first night in Asheville over seven years ago. Give us a call to view this great space that sits just above our downtown office.
